My Heart Bee-longs To You!

 Welcome back fellow bloggers!

Wow, May just buzzed by, June is here and time for another Double D Challenge.  

Here's the buzz...."BEE Inspired"  
We want to see bees and/or anything that inspires you on the mood board....colors of yellow and black, honeycomb and hexagons, textures and quotes.  Whatever gets your mojo going.
You could be one of our creative choices or the winner by random draw of the stamp set below.

The mood board...

I made two inspired by design and the other inspired by the colors.

my heart bee-longs to you!

First up is this black/gold card featuring lots of the hexagon and honeycomb designs.  The patterned papers are matted with the same gold foil used for the honeycomb die and sentiment matting.  I love this paper collection!  It's a special edition, "Tell the Bees" from Craft Consortium.  Not easy to find, but I'm glad I finally did locate it.  This was the perfect opportunity to use it.

Next up is this A2 card with a diagonal washi tape background design matted in black.  I've had this tape for quite a while and have only used the black/gold hexagon.  I love the bold contrast between the bright yellow, white and black.  The sentiment background is stenciled with distress ink, die cut and matted.  I embellished with a 3-D bee sticker.

Both cards are so appealing. The first one should get the president's seal of approval. But the second one is so cute and dazzling.
